Our jaws would drop, too, if we received a special message from legendary composer Alan Menken. 

On Friday, Darren Espanto got a wonderful surprise when he woke up to the Disney icon describing his version of "A Whole New World," which he performed with Morissette, as "amazing." :

"Thank you so much for the kind words, Sir! Hope to meet you soon!" he wrote as the caption to the clip.

Menken said that it was a shame that they could not meet in person. 

Espanto was not able to join Morissette when she visited Menken, as well as "Aladdin" star Will Smith.
